My friends band asked me to do some quick individual shots of their band in their practice space(basement). location definetly wasnt the best, but whatever. i had to work with what i had.

they're a metal band, so they wanted a gritty feel to their shots.

Wow! great shots. I like the last one the most. least amount of destracting backround. If it was for me I would darken the the top of pic one so it goes to black like the side. I really like the colour saturation and the sharpness.

Absolutely love the background. These shots have a lot of character - some of the best band promo shots I've seen lately :) #1, #2 and #4 stand out more than #3 but that may just be the more interesting expressions ;)

I agree 1, 2 and 4 are great and number 3 is... well... a little boring, but I think that is the subjects fault with the lack of animation. I am no expert but I find the shadows little distracting. Maybe if the subjects were lit from above to pull the shadows down to the ground more? Just a thought. But in any case very nice.

#1 looks kinda like overdone HDR to me (they all have a slight taste of that); the bass player is my fave.

I like the 'HDR' look on these. How did you do 'em? Multiple processing of one CR2? Or do they just look a bit like HDR and was another process used?
#3 would benefit from a tighter crop (loose the left and a bit of top & bottom)

Yes, that's the 'look' that I was wondering about, too, Rene.

I like them very much as well.

I'd have to disagree on the "HDR" look as HDR usually has more details in the shadows. Very creative I think the band and fans will like them!

thanks guys.

not HDR. i shot these all as jpgs, then took them into photoshop, duplicated the layer, applied the lucis filter to the top one, then lowered the opacity. thats pretty much it.

Lucis filter? As in the lucisarts filter?

Damn, alot of nice stuff is coming out now using that filter and it's so expensive! :(

Nice work, I especially like the way the bass player came out.
